    In the end of the exhaust side breather pipe. Position it so the engine can breathe out but not in. Bear in mind though that its just a temporary bodge. ;)

    Went to hope spares today in search of the fitting for my turbo feed, no joy although they said they'd call tommorro, so until that's sorted I've been forced to use this [​IMG], I have to remove the original elbow completely and screw this one right into the block, I was informed that I'd have to create some type of inline restrictor as the original has one so I found this[​IMG] it's all been pressure tested and it should work , we'll see [​IMG] better pic

    Yep. Was looking under a 13 on the weekend and thinking of your video and noticed the top half fitted to that one, so...

    Has anyone had any success with using a pattern Z32 AFM such as:

    Air flow Mass Meter NISSAN 2268030P00 300ZX Z32 1989- | eBay

    Rather than using a more expensive genuine 20 year old AFM that potentially has been kicking around a workshop, and posted who knows how many times, I was thinking this could this be a viable option.

    Also does anyone know where to get the plugs and pins, can you get them from RS components or anything like that?

    John Bennet bench tested genuine Vs pattern AFM's.

    Don't bother using a pattern part.

    You can get them reconditioned if you're concerned about age

    Little update on my ca, had it mapped at Emerald and it made 311bhp at the wheels. Had a few issues on the day, i hadnt fitted some resistors for the injectors and i had interferance on th CAS wiring which was causing the ecu to lose the cam signal, the guys at emerald sorted these problems for me at no extra cost. I really cant praise them enough.
    Skidded the car saturday and all was well until the rear end locked up solid and i had to be hiabed off the cirtrack, ive not had a chance to figure out why yet.

    Think someone said it fouls the PS belt, I think gktech or something did an uprated fan it self but not sure it was for the CA or SR

    I think that's the other way round, I think the CA is a bit shorter so it fouls on the RB Blocks PS Belt, so it should fit a CA

    Fitted an RB25 fan to mine tonight. Can confirm they don't fit as i had to redrill to suit.
    Is rb20 different to 25?

    Finally had a chance to tidy up the wiring on the CA, heres the finally score. I even had a bit of time to make a heat shield for the manifold and a carbon coilpack cover with holes drilled in it to allow for some heat to escape.

    I have a question about the diff back plate on a 13 aswell, There an oil pipe on mine that has snapped off, is this an oil feed or return for the diff oil cooler and does anyone know where I can buy a new one?
